Protests against Sri Lanka on the wane: RamadossNovember 1st, 2008 - 10:10 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, Nov 1 (IANS) Even as the Tamil film industry drummed up support for the ethnic minority in Sri Lanka Saturday, PMK chief S. Ramadoss, one of the staunch supporters of the Tamil minority in the island nation, said the tempo of protests against Colombo was on the wane.”The tempo of Tamil Nadu’s anger is on the wane. Though huge funds are being collected as relief for the suffering Tamils of Sri Lanka, they have little bearing as the killings are going on unabated (in Sri Lanka),” Ramadoss said.
“The politically powerful in India including the state and central government are not insisting on the end to military operations against Tamils in Sri Lanka - which is the only crying need of the hour. Instead there is a lot of useless rhetoric here,” Ramadoss added.
